    Canada - Jayesh Prajapati, 44, fatally run over in gas & dash, Toronto, 15 Sept 2012

    Gas-and-dash theft reward of $25,000 offered


    "Three years to the day gas station attendant Jayesh Prajapati was killed trying to stop a gas-and-dash theft, Toronto police have taken the unusual step of offering a $25,000 reward for the man wanted in connection to his death.

    Prajapati, 44, came to Canada from India in 2006 with his wife and son. He held a master's degree in chemistry but was unable to find work in his field. He supported his family by working at the Shell gas station at the intersection of Roselawn Road and Marlee Avenue, near Eglinton Avenue West and Allen Road.

    Just after 9 p.m. on Sept. 15, 2012, police say Max Edwin Tutiven, 39, of Toronto drove an Isuzu Rodeo up to the pumps, filled the vehicle's tank and some containers with $112.85 in gas before trying to flee without paying.

    When Prajapati tried to stop him by standing in front of the vehicle and raising his arms, he was run down.

    "The driver then accelerated … running him down and dragging him down the street," said Toronto police Det. Sgt. Stacy Gallant at a news conference Tuesday. "He then fled the scene, making no attempt to stop."

    "Police in Montreal have arrested a suspect in a 2012 “gas-and-dash” theft that left a man dead in midtown Toronto.

    Max Edwin Tutiven, now 42, was wanted on a second-degree murder charge in the death of 44-year-old Jayesh Prajapati. Tutiven was arrested around 9:30 am this morning after a Canada-wide arrest warrant was issued, said Montreal police spokesman Andre Leclerc.

    Leclerc said investigators had received some information that Tutiven was in Montreal’s east-end. Police were going to get a warrant to enter the building, but Tutiven surrendered first, said Leclerc.

    Two days earlier, Toronto police announced a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in the case at a news conference, marking the three-year anniversary of Prajapati’s death."
